National Computer Society Dismisses Australia’s 457 Permit Dilemma

As per certain reports, the concerned Australian organization has alleged that a remarkable drop witnessed in the number of the undergraduates pursuing various study courses in the Information Technology (IT), together with a skills scarcity–instead of the excess usage of the 457 permits—is the key issue haunting the national IT industry at the present.

It added that the administration had got its priorities wrong in the wake of the recent enactment of the legislation that claims to make the usage of the 457 Permits tighter, to fill skill scarcities in the country with the manpower from abroad. It requires to be duly mentioned here that the previous Premier and the Immigration Minister had thrown light on the susceptibility of the IT jobs in Down Under to being filled by the overseas workers.

Whether the IT industry manages to draw benefits from the latest 457 permit requirement–that firms carry-out market labor testing, prior to exploring out-of-the-country options–is presently contested on many stages. In spite of being mentioned as prime recipients, the first worry allegedly is that the national IT employees haven’t been denied the parallel level of protection in the latest Migration Amendment (Temporary Sponsored Visas) Act as engineers, nurses, besides lower-class employees.

Allegedly, firms cannot be let-off from the first, i.e., seeking citizens or permanent residents while publicizing for trained engineers & nurses. However, in the coming years, the IT job regions, which necessitate a Bachelor’s degree–apart from an experience of 5 years, or an corresponding degree or diploma under the Australian Qualifications Framework, or an experience of 3 years–may be let-off from the labor market testing, via a ministerial diktat even while work-opportunities wouldn’t require to be duly advertised.
